I was playign a song and i went to hit the c note (low e, 8th fret) it sounds f.ucking awful. It's like a scratchy, metally noise noise. I don't think its the fret wire because none of the other strings give me this problem on the 8th fret. It doesn't happen on ANY other fret on the guitar just 8th, low e.

Has anybody ever come across this before, if you have please help??

It's probably just a fret buzzing. Try pressing hard down on the note, and see if it sounds normal then. If it does, you can probably set that string a bit higher and see if that fixes it.

By the way, this would probably be better in the Electric Guitar forum, or GB&C

Yes well i would totally agree that it was fret buzz, and i would lower my bridge except what i probably should of mentioned is that this is on my acoustic ... my bad. And as hard i press i still get the noise.

I'd say it's the string, guitar, or the pick-ups.

Yea ... the pickups on acoustics are notoriously poor

Before you change the string (if you haven't already) try adjusting the Truss Rod so it gives less resistance to the pull of the strings. That should heighten them a bit, and hopefully solve your problem.

If worse comes to worst, you can do what I did, shave down that fret in front of it that's buzzing a bit until it doesn't buzz, and nothing else does either. It's probably not like a massively expensive piece of equipment or something if you're having neck problems, so no loss.

The action is either too low or you have a warped neck. Learn how to adjust teh trust rodz0rz and all that jazz if those arent the problems.

Problem solved, i had a look at the string that was over the lower fret and it had a bump in it even though it was taught, like the inner metal bit of the string had broke or something. So i changed the string and voila it worked.

That guitar is probably a piece of crap then


Hell, he's lucky it's only ONE fret. I had to raise my bridge with a Super Custom One-of-a-Kind Grey Crayola Colored Pencil to stop the buzzing, among much customizing.

....If I'da known for just one second you'd be back to bother me.

Now go, walk out the door. Turn around, you're not welcome anymore. Weren't you the one who tried to break me with desire? Did you think I'd crumble? Did you think I'd lay down and die?

Well I will, I will survive, as long as I know how to Love, I know I'll be alive. I've got all my life to live, all my Love to give, I will survive.
